Sneaky Dates

Last night, as I was happily telling Cody the basic plots of the next 4 Madison Fox, Illuminant Enforcer adventures (as you can see, my imagination works much faster than the writing process), I abruptly realized that November is a mere 3 days away! Which of course means NaNo WriMo is a mere 3 days away! It seemed to come out of nowhere, sneaking up on me while I was looking the other direction (we'll forget for the moment that I have a calendar right here in my office that I look at and write on daily).

My sudden panic and giddy excitement is due to the fact that now, in only 3 days, I will begin the second book in the Madison Fox, Illuminant Enforcer series! My days will need to expand to include time to write the allotted word count and still get my paying job done as well as the edits and selling of Madison 1 done! I'm not quite sure at this point how that's going to happen. I'm in the wing-it phase, just as I am with the plot of book 2. Oh, I know what'll happen on a big, general scale, but all the little details and subplots haven't surfaced yet. If my experience this time is true to last time, in about a week I'll be filled with the need to storyboard book 2 out. Until then, it's all a vague blur in between major plot points.

If you want to join in on the fun and complete your own NaNo WriMo masterpiece, let me know and we can encourage each other. If not, wishes of luck will suffice.

Hooray for NaNo! I wish you well on your noveling. Please keep us all updated (not that you'll have a lot of free time to blog) so I can write vicariously through you.
